This is a work in progress and always evolving. I love my protein shakes and I can be pretty demanding! My mom has put me on a strict budget so I can only try new flavors if I find a sample. Luckily, she loves buying me samples.
Here is a list of places to find samples:
1. One GREAT idea is to try different flavors from GNC or Vitamin Shoppe if you have them local. They both let you try and RETURN if you don’t like it!! GNC will actually give a refund and Vitamin Shoppe normally gives you in-store credit which is really easy to spend since they have tons of stuff. Get a GNC Gold Card and get great discounts the first week of every month.
NOTE: Vitamin Shoppe will also order items for you! I called last week to see if they carried Nectar Latte Cappuccino since they have the other Nectar flavors. They didn't have that one but offered to order it for me and call me when it got there. It arrived 3 days later!
2. Support Groups - This is a great place to have a protein trade. I had several jugs I didn't like and I traded them for some I do.
3. Variation - Don't like a certain powder in shake form? Try mixing it in yogurt or sugar-free pudding -- I have a few flavors I love mixed in greek yogurt, but don't like to drink.
